    PS Store sales are created on a regional basis, kind of like how a GameStop in the UK and the US would have different sales

This is probably the wrong place to post this, but the Vita online store is terrible. It’s even worse than the Ps3 store. You can’t download anything without freezing the vita, and people have been complaining for months. Not only that, but both Atelier Totori Plus and Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus both say no content available when you try to purchase them from the Vita games A-Z section of the store. The only way you can find them is if you manually search for them. Whoever is in charge of the vita store should be fired. You guys are costing Tecmo Koei money.

    Thanks, the team is aware of the downloading issue and is working on a fix.

Stuff We Talked About
-Dragon’s Crown

No love for Tales of Xillia? Especially considering Ryan was pretty much the JRPG guy over at IGN…

I know this probably isn’t the best place to post this but could we possibly get a “Search” feature within the Download List? I have over 1,100 items and when I had reformat after the firmware issue a few weeks back, it’s quite a pain to go back through to redownload items I have purchased. Or even if this could just be implemented into the web version of the PSN store.
Or if I searched for a game via the current search feature, if it could have a “Re-download” option listed on the game’s page.

Thanks so much!! ^-^

@#1- The Psn/Psvita ports are still incoming but are being handled by a third party dev team. According to Derek Yu, Spelunky’s creator, the versions are coming “a little while later”. So no official release date has been set. Would love to hear new info on not only Spelunky, but also the Psvita versions of Terraria and The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth.

Ryumoau said:

August 10th, 8:48 am

eh…personally sick of Last of Us talk now. Only thing interesting coming to psn next week for me is Ducktales, but i find the price about high for that kinda game.

Any news on when we will be given the option to preorder One Piece Pirate Warriors 2? As usual, EU has it and other games for preorder weeks ahead of their release while we tend to wait till the last minute for some reason. We didn’t even get Xillia preorder for some reason. :(

I’m hoping that since that PLAY 2013 ends next week, you’ll be able to concentrate on preorders on better titles now.

I am also looking forward to info on Spelunky and Terraria for VITA (not to mention Dive Kick). Two other indies that would be awesome on Vita: FTL and Rogue Legacy!

@1 , spelunky is coming in a month or so , but since it’s a sub par version of the game spelunker which was the original game spelunky was based on I recommend you check out speluker hd on psn , which released a fre years ago
spelunky is basically a knockoff made by another developer for pc when they couldn’t license the arcade game , it has a lot of the same game play mechanics and it’s the same game environment , and even the same super hard frustrating difficulty level , but I prefer the original .
I’ll get spelunky too but only because I can play on psvita

FJ1100_rider said:

August 10th, 11:39 am

@8 , there is an easy workaround for that issue , log into the web store – buy your psvita content , add it to your download queue and turn on the vita console
the game or dlc will start to download , no need to use the vuta store other than look at what’s available or use your downloads list

as for content showing as not available I have never had that happen , but if it’s happening for you just use the psVita new releases or all games section and scroll through the games

rabidninjamonky said:

August 10th, 12:00 pm

@17 Thanks for trying to help. I know about the web store. I had to use it to buy cladun x-2, since it was removed from vita store for some reason. Unfortunately I don’t always have my laptop with me. I was going to buy Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 plus a couple months ago, and when i tried to buy the game it said no content available. I assumed sony removed the game for quality purposes, but I later saw it on the web store. Go ahead check it out. if you try to purchase either NGS2 or Atelier Totori plus from the vita store, you won’t be able to find them without manually searching. It’s ridiculous! Tecmo Koei deserves better from Sony.

Great Blogcast. I have a Dualshock 4-related question: Does the Dualshock 4 work on the PS3? I will be getting a PS4 at launch but I’ll come back to my PS3 a lot due to games like GTAV and TLOU and also due to PS Plus. After all the stuff I’ve heard about the DS4, I’d hate to have to go back to the DS3.

i know i asked this about a week ago but i would like to know if there are any updates on Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate:
-Will it have pre-order costumes with PSN version.
-Will it be a Day 1 Digital order?

Hi guys, My name is Guillermo. I was recently, just yesterday as a matter of fact, charged with another 3 months of playstation plus by auto renewal. I didn’t want that. I know it sounds awesome to have another 3 months of playstation plus but I wasn’t planning to buy it. This is rather odd since I’ve bought playstation plus before through the Playsation store and usually it just expires. Well I was wondering if I could get any help with this problem. Who to call, what to do.
Thank you.

Can you guys please elaborate more about The Last of Us documentary? Like where exactly can I find this on the PSN? I don’t have the season pass but I would gladly buy this as a PSN movie download.
